Trip across Russia: Kaliningrad-Vladivostok-Kaliningrad motor rally 2013

Kaliningrad-Vladivostok-Kaliningrad motor rally 2013 startedToday again I’m going to tell you about one curious event that started just yesterday, on May 23, in Kaliningrad. So, let me present and draw your attention to this fascinating occasion — Rally, covering the route Kaliningrad-Vladivostok-Kaliningrad. Talking to our partners from Baltavtomatika, I found out that this is the very first time when Kaliningrad is holding such kind of event, attracting a huge audience, including Baltic-Expo specialists, Baltic business club members, as well as Chamber of Commerce and Industry members.

And for sure I wondered what were the aims, pursued by the organizers of this extraordinary «trip across Russia »? First of all they define the rally as a wonderful opportunity to launch a new tour called «Russia-Expo», expand and strengthen business ties, as well as position Russia and Yekaterinburg in particular as a venue for «EXPO-2020», and Vladivostok as the center of Asia-Pacific region business activity.

The route is expected to be really exciting! Participants will travel throughout the whole territory of Russia, from its most Western to the most Eastern point, from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok. While covering the distance rally members will visit the following cities: Saint Petersburg, Arkhangelsk, Moscow, Belgorod, Voronezh, Rostov-on-Don, Krasnodar, Sochi, Stavropol, Volgograd, Saratov, Samara, Astrakhan, Kazan, Cheboksary, Saransk, Nizhny Novgorod, Kirov, Khabarovsk, Ufa, Orenburg, Chelyabinsk, Perm, Yekaterinburg, Tyumen, Omsk, Novosibirsk, Barnaul, Novokuznetsk, Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk, Chita and Blagoveshchensk.

During stopovers, provided on the bases of Russian Union of Exhibitions and Fairs, participants will have a good chance not only to take a breath and have a small rest, but also to enhance business and cultural communication with other expo-members. And every city and region will do its best to present its expo capabilities and investment potential.

According to our colleagues in Kaliningrad, during the opening public attention was totally drawn by the main rally vehicle— the «Prussia» car, which is a unique model of «Motor Home» class car for Russia. The uniqueness of this car lies in the combination of the best «Motor Home» and jeep/minivan features: «Motor Home» comfort (furniture, home appliances, shower cubicle, porta-potty, TV-set, DVD, audio system, Internet, computer, supplementary heating, the height of 1.94 m, spacious baggage hold and many many more useful options), and jeep/minivan high maneuverability (speed without 80 km/h limitation, 4х2 or 4х4 off-road performance, suitable dimensions for parking, low fuel consumption rate — 10-15 l per 100 km, cost effectiveness in use, safety and security).

The car is equipped by GPS tracking system, based on Wialon Pro software solution. Surely, it gives plenty of advantages: helps to control the car performance, track fuel consumption, engine condition and etc. — all in all, benefit from extended capacities of the modern GPS tracking system, and what is also crucial, prevent carjacking.

So, if you’re interested, and I’m pretty sure that this event is definitely worth keeping track of, Baltavtomatika during the whole rally will provide all the event followers with the possibility to watch the rally in two ways: simple and more detailed one (where you can track the participants’ movement online and see the event history in the «Reports» mode)
